utorrent.com

the size of the show is listed close to where you download the .torrent file, check there. 6GB is good for one dvd or 10+ audio shows depending on the filesizes. back up the data you download unchanged to DVD if you are capable.

Re: How much space do i need?

Once you start, you'll have a hard time stopping. You'll probably eat up that 6 gigs pretty quick.

It's a good start though.

I've been liking utorrent a lot lately myself....but then Toto will say I'm in Florida.

Re: How much space do i need?

And those of us in California and New York will sit on the fence about the issue.

I use Azureus on my mac, but utorrent on my PC. There are still a couple of things I'm trying to figure out about utorrent, but it isn't the resource hog that Azureus is and on my PC that is important (I think I only have 128 MB of memory in the thing).
